Learn something everyday, thanks. Do you know what time period he was doing this? I had never heard DL mention this as being a reason why they don't ever seem to release anything from '84 through '87 but it makes sense.

It seems like he started either with Jerry's comeback or with the Spring '87. I *think* that he continued to mix at least a little audience thereafter, though he toned it down after the tour. I remember seeing mics at the front corners of the soundboard at least thru Europe '90.

For example, listen to the Hampton '87 boards [https://archive.org/details/gd1987-03-22.mtx.peterson.GEMS.123019.flac16]- I find them virtually indistinguishable from the audiences of the shows... by the next year there was much less crowd in the board [https://archive.org/details/gd1988-03-27.sbd.jerugim.braverman.fix-406.3383.shnf].

What was the point? I get the idea of mic'ing the audience if you are doing multitrack recording with the intent of releasing a live album, but that was not the purpose of these tapes. Seems like he was more interested in capturing something for the people he was letting plug into the board than the band he was working for.
